I have spent a couple days going through the threads and I thank you for the background info. I will, none the less, ask some perhaps silly questions!
My wife, myself and our 10 yr old would like to come for about a week mid July, we can only fly into Larnaca .
Being on or very near the beach is important for my wife and daughter and I must have internet because I will need to work :-(.
We want to be close to reasonably priced restaurants and also a vibrant "promenade" but not so close we can't sleep at night!
it seems Protaras might be good for us, is it complicated to get there from the airport without a taxi as they seem expensive? I see a bus runs is it reliable? Or should we find somewhere closer to the airport?
In general should we look for an apartment? I get the impression there are reasonably priced supermarkets and whilst we may very well go out for dinner we may not.
Thank you for your time!
